This may have come up before and I missed it....

Has anyone tried these tires?

Shinko 241. Price seems to low to believe.

Thanks

Alan

2-4-1 is that the price? :rolleyes:
Never heard of them myself....I'm trying out a budget tyre ;Vee rubber 308@50..(if that's relevant to you).I'll let you know how it pans out .
So far my only comment is that the side-wall seems very rigid and it was a bugger to seat the bead,needing a cheetah to do it.
For the last time...it's not 'SUPPOSED' to have a seat.

They look the part but as you know thats not the crucial aspect...does it grip? :rolleyes:

It would be great if a new manufacturer could break the monopoly that Mich/Dunlop and IRC seem to have.
I see what you're getting at though...we need a pioneer to spend his own dosh ,give them a test and report back to TC.
All those willing to volunteer, take one step forward???

From the info on the website , they are based on 1998 yokohama technology !!??!!! ...
I don't remember a yoko trials tire , unless they were OE. on some enduro bikes ?

The rear Shinko tyre in the photo has a different aspect ratio (lower profile) to Michelin/Dunlop/IRC - looks more like MITAS
Lower profile = probably inferior to the name brand tyres on logs, rocks etc but probably OK for Dirt Track racing
I already wasted my money trying a MITAS so I'm not going to be the bunny
